I am an Italian/English illustrator with a degree in Illustration from Falmouth College of Art, passionate about developing stories for children's books and animations.
My most notable professional accomplishment has been working for Ragdoll Ltd. (the production company creator of Teletubbies, In the Night Garden, DipDap and many more treasures) on the BBC children's series The Adventures of Abney and Teal. On this project, I worked as a sequential designer on the development of storyboards and animatics and then as a leading animator. Later, when the video production ended, I was the illustrator on the adaptation of the TV series to a range of nine titles published by Walker Books that include flap, sticker, colouring in and picture books.
Currently, I work as an English teacher, which I love doing, and occasionally as a translator. Over the last couple of years, I have dedicated my spare time to developing ideas for children's books. I am now in the process of finding a home for my work and, as soon as I can reveal my latest achievements publicly, I will update this site.
For the time being, you can enjoy a selection of drawings and illustrations I have created over the years, plus my animation work.
